In the case that the domain (ether .com, .net, .org, .biz., .info, etc) has been expired for the period of 30 days, it will enter a ‘redemption’ status.
While in this period, the current registrant for the domain is still able to retrieve and renew their domain for a fee. This period lasts another 30 days.
If the domain is not recovered, it will be released.
As such, there are 3 options in this case:
- Zeumic recovers the domain on your behalf through direct communication with the Sydney Data Centre. This can be completed for $149. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Please note the redemption recovery process takes approximately 7 days.
- The domain is allowed to lapse, and immediately registered again at a price which excludes the fee. This can be done at webengin.com.au. This method leaves a window in which others can claim your domain, and, as such, the potential to lose your domain permanently.
- A different domain name is chosen. This can once again be done at the price of registering a new domain.
